A new poll finds Herschel Walker is leading Raphael Warnock in the Georgia senate race, despite recent attacks on Walker from Democrats and the media.
Democrats are desperate to hold on to this seat, but it’s not looking good for them.
Nothing is certain, but it currently looks like Walker is on track for a win here.
Breitbart News reports:
Poll: Herschel Walker Holds 3-Point Lead over Democrat Warnock in Georgia Senate Battle
Republican Herschel Walker continues to hold a narrow lead over Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the battleground race for U.S. Senate in Georgia, according to a poll published Friday.
The poll, conducted by InsiderAdvantage and Fox 5 Atlanta among 550 likely voters, found Walker three points ahead of Warnock. Walker received 48 percent, Warnock received 45 percent, libertarian candidate Chase Oliver received two percent, and five percent of respondents said they were undecided.
The poll, which has a margin of error of 4.2 percentage points, is the fifth in a row to show Walker with a single-point edge over Warnock, indicating Walker is surging in the final weeks of the race.
Walker, a University of Georgia football legend and former NFL player, is angling to unseat Warnock, a longtime pastor and one of the most well-funded Democrats in the country. The race has been highly competitive from the outset and is widely viewed as one that could determine which party controls the U.S. Senate next year.
See the breakdown below:

Democrats are so worried about this race that they sent in Obama to campaign against Walker.
Obama: "Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player… does that make him the best person to represent you?… let's say you're at the airport & you see Walker & you say, Hey, there's Herschel, Heisman winner. Let's have him fly the plane!" pic.twitter.com/ObyfIsOAEA

It’s probably not going to work, but it shows you how nervous Democrats really are.
